Folks are getting in formation to boycott Chili’s and it’s all Donald Trump’s fault!
U.S. Army Veteran Ernest Walker sat down to take part in Chili’s annual Veteran’s Day meal deal, but was smacked in the face with discrimination and humiliation. After being confronted by a man in a Trump shirt about his service to America, Walker’s free meal was taken away from him by a Chili’s manager claiming that he wasn’t a real vet.
Ernest shared his story and video on Facebook…
I was approached by an old white guy, maybe in his 70s, with a Trump Shirt, at Chili’s on Veteran’s Day yesterday. He asked if I was in the 24th unit, and I said “no the 25th”. TRICK QUESTION. He said he was in Germany, and that they did not let Blacks serve over there. He left to the back, and came back and rubbed my dog Barack, who is a service dog. I was seated and eating my food. The waitress packed the rest of my food in a to go box because I had to go pick up my wife. I got my food and tipped the waitress. Then the Manager, MR. Wesley Patrick, comes from the same area in the back, walked up, and rudly informs me that a guest said that I was not a real soldier because I had my hat on indoors. Other guests heard him. He asked for my military ID, I was calm, and provided it to him. I also provided him with my DD214 which is my discharge paperwork. At that point he should have just said “I am sorry Sir, thank you for your service’ Instead he followed up with “the guest also said your dog is not a service dog.” Barack had his Red Service Vest on, and his Certified Service Tags. I was sitting for 35 minutes prior with Barack beforehand. At this point I was grossly offended embarrassed dehumanized and started Recording…Mr. Wesley snatched my food away, made body contact
After receiving thousands of complaints from those threatening to boycott Chili’s, the restaurant began to respond to commenters on their Facebook page.
They also issued this statement:
“Our goal is to make every guest feel special and, unfortunately, we fell short on a day where we serve free meals as a small token to honor our Veterans…We are taking this very seriously and the leaders in our company are actively involved with the goal of making it right.”
Hhmph! Let’s hope that Chili’s tries to make America great again and fires the manager that made such an egregious error in judgment!
Becky With The Bad Braids: Meghan McCain + 8 Other Epic Braid Fails
White folks rocking corn rows and braids is nothing knew, but Meghan McCain’s recent hair do while on The View had us shaking our heads.
Besides the fact that it’s Black History Month and they should put a pause on the cultural appropriation, it was just a bad look on Meghan. The Republican co-host (or her stylist) thought it was a good idea to put three cornrows in hair with a super teased pompadour in the middle section. And to make matters worse the braids were chunky at the top and super thin towards the end. Sigh.
Clearly this was not a black hair dresser because if it were they would have at least added some hair. Instead they had Meghan out here looking like a character from Game of Thrones. Or maybe that’s what they were going for. Either way it’s a no for us dawg.
It was also a no for us when Christina Aguilera decided to get dirty and rock “medusa” braids to the World Music Awards in 2001.
Then sometime in the 2000s Fergie thought being apart of the Black Eye Peas gave her a pass to wear corn rows.
Kevin Federline also thought since his baby mama (Shar Jackson) was black he could walk around looking an NBA player. Deep sigh.
Melanie Griffin looked a hot damn mess rocking braids with beads and foil on the ends in 2000.
Ke$ha made us cringe in these colorful braids with knots the size of our knuckles.
Kim Kardashian also had us screaming girl bye when she first attempted to rock braids like Bo Derek.
Lena Dunham tried it with these pitiful plaits during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
And Coco almost got a pass until she decided to call her braids the “Coco swoop”.
